Dent doesn't look too bad, and luckily the back side is easily accessed. A paint-less dent repair specialist should have no problem at all with it.

Also, nice shoes.

That or if you or someone you know has any body working experience it's something you could do yourself, basically you'll need a heat gun and some rubber mallets.

Also my guess for what's in the box is side-skirts.

My initial thought was cat-back, but it looks like he already has some kind of aftermarket setup. My other guess is coil-overs.

You should have turned the wheel to the left and photoshopped in some dirt and rocks going everywhere. Or done it for real, whatever. tongue.gif

Right so as you saw i just had my Manifold and down pipe arrive and i thought im too impatient to wait till the rest of exhaust arrives so im going to fit it this weekend.

well i got as far as opening the bonnet and taking the heat shield off before i had to stop because i realised i did not have enough tools to get the job done right, so its back to the shop for more tools. mad.gif

So now for the first time in a while we had a bit of sun and my mate (FrostBiitez) had just had a delivery of plasti dip so what better to do than spray my block for my spoiler black while he sprayed his wheels.





tried my spoiler on FrostBiitez car to see what it would look like when his arrives in a couple of weeks.



some high tech spray stand here



time for spraying





wipe off some over spray and....















so Before



and after



Not bad for a first attend ever spraying Plasti dip

next up spray the rest of the car in it. o and sort out all the dents biggrin.gif

well my car died yesterday on the way to work.

clutch and radiator went in the same day, so its going to be off the road for the next couple weeks.

I have ordered all the new parts and i was going to do the clutch my self but just don't have the tools or facility's to it myself so i'm just going to send it in.

Kind of odd the clutch would go without any kind of warning, generally you'll have signs of slippage. You did make sure it wasn't the hydraulics first?
